Weight Loss Surgery Foundation of America

Saving lives one grant at a time

Dr. Paul Cirangle

Chief Medical Officer

Dr. Cirangle is a pioneer and thought leader in the field of Laparoscopic and Minimally Invasive Surgery.

Deciding to have a boutique weight loss surgery practice has afforded me the pleasure to offer a completely comprehensive program and really get to know my patients and their needs. Since they are exclusively followed by me, I am able to hear their struggles, progress, and accomplishments. So many patients in other programs fall through the cracks and do not receive the education and tools needed for success. My practice embodies the first part of your mission statement-empowering people to move from surviving to thriving through weight loss surgery, education and support. Sharing the tools that make my practice and my patients successful would greatly benefit the weight loss surgery community.

I believe my position as a faculty member of ASMBS and relationships in the bariatric community will bring quite a bit to the table for WLSFA. I am excited about getting involved in the first organization (to my knowledge) that not only recognizes the struggles of those who reach roadblocks for a surgery they desperately need, but it also doing something positive about it. Anything that shines a light on the morbidly obese-who are often ignored or mistreated in the medical community-is a movement that I would love to get behind.

  1. Welcome Dr. Cirangle! I look forward to meeting you at ASMBS and future WLSFA events. You are a wonderful addition to an amazing organization and we are richer for having you on our side. Here’s hoping more surgeons will pull a page from your book, join the team and focus on long-term patient support and success.
